Jewish Music Series

L’Chaim! To Life!

The Jewish Music Series at Sonoma State is a presentation of the Department of Music and the Jewish Studies Program. Now in its 7th year, the series is widely acclaimed for its breadth, depth, and musical excellence as it poses the eternal question of “What makes music Jewish?”
The concerts—a component of the “Survey of Jewish Music” class—run about 90 minutes in length, are free and open to the public. $5 parking fee applies

For more information contact the Department of Music at 707-664-2324 or Jewish Studies Program Director Brian S. Wilson.

Admission is free!
